What will 5G do for me?

Recommended Posts

I noticed that Click (BBC) were showing how safe (According to guidelines) 5G transmitters are. Yet according to an interview I heard on coast to coast am, with Matthew Landman (http://www.actualactivists.com/index.php/events), engineers working on 5G Antennas have been affected greatly, a flock of birds were seen to fall from the sky during a 5G test, and lots of other scare stories. So who is right, and who wants to take the risk?

My wife complained to 3BB because our internet was slow. 20mps usually at 10mps or less. They offered to upgrade us from 20mps to 100mps for no extra charge. They guys came and installed today, and as I connected to the new router what did I see? 5G. I speed tested it at a 165mps.

Luckily, they left the old router which still works. I've been speed testing it for the past few hours and getting 40mps from it. Coincidence? 

Here, 5G refers to the wifi signal being 5GHz, rather than, or in addition to, the 'standard' 2.4GHz.  (My True supplied router provides both).  5GHz is generally faster, but has a shorter range than 2.4GHz.  It has nothing to do with 5G cellular technology, (where the 'G' stands for "generation"), which operates at 30 - 300GHz

I also saw "Click" yesterday and the most important conclusion: if you have used a mobile phone over the years, you "can take the risk", too late anyway, you are already burned as the emission from the handset is much worse :biggrin:

Urban myth or true: German Telekom installed a 5G transmission mast.

Soon after they got complaints about health hazard from a neighboring citizen.

Their response: how bad will it become if we actually turn it on?

Yes, I will nitpick as much as I like as I'm not 100% convinced although I agree that the 5G roll out should be delayed.

 

Of course you are entitled to question Al Gore's motivation & opinion but no, his credentials are irrelevant just as yours & mine are.

 

You continue your character assassination of Greta Thunberg too and the linked piece is complete rubbish.

 

Three final points. One, attacking the character of those you disagree with is disgusting and just serves to reveal your lack of ethics - and argument for that matter. Two, doing it in a thread that is not about climate change is downright dishonest.

 

Three, the climate change that those who you attack are working against, IS man-made. That's the whole point and no deflection is going to alter it.

 

 

 

Delighted you agree the 5G roll-out should be delayed. Now all you and I have to do is convince the rest of the world!

 

Re Al Gore's credentials, these are relevant because his published material has factual errors  and makes doomladen predictions which the passage of time has shown to be wrong.

 

Re Greta Thunberg, my views on her merciless exploitation by adults who should know better reflect the facts, and I make no apology for expressing them.

 

You dismiss as "rubbish" the Cory Morningstar article (one of an extremely detailed and well-researched investigation by a climate specialist writer, available at the same website) yet fail to advance a single fact in support of your unjustified slur.

 

On climate change, I agree it is "real". The world's weather is constantly changing, always has and always will. What urgently needs to change is the current climate of apocalypse hysteria generating nonsensical, inhumane, impractical, economically disastrous knee-jerk solutions  to what is a long-term problem within the ingenuity of mankind and modern technology to solve.

 

Had you bothered to read Cory Morningstar's detailed, painstakingly-researched series on the subject, you might be asking a question which should exercise us all - why the fossil fuel industry has become one of the biggest financial backers of the climate change protest movement.

 

Never mind climate change, my friend. Are you ready for the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

Ah great, thanks for that.

The messaging and hype is that 5G will benefit consumers. That is mostly a lie being pushed by Telco's imo.  The truth is that it benefits them and that is what they are excited about.  They can use their existing infrastructure and radio spectrum more efficiently and offer new types of services.  None of that will trickle down to consumers in the form of lower prices.  Consumers will see higher bandwidth options but only if they are willing to pay more for that higher bandwidth.  I doubt it will result in lower prices for existing services.  It will result in additional services.

5G will open a whole new world to get all possible devices and 'things' connected  ... our (digital) life will never be the same again.

 

You can't compare, i.e. 3G to 4G, only in terms of a bit 'faster internet', to what opens up with 5G

With 5G data processed via super quantum computers the state will observe and track every hour of your life.

Why were my health warning posts about 5G removed?

If you really want to know contact the TVF help desk.

Actually they can not. Telco's have to upgrade their infrastructure to get 5G ready.

 

Just follow the talks i.e. about Huawei to be allowed to do so in US, Germany etc. Debates about security risks etc.

Australia and Korea's current iteration of 5G (non-stand alone, 3.6 GHz) piggybacks off the 4G core network, its not that much better than 4G at the end of the day

 

Stand alone mmWave networks need their own infrastructure especially for the low latency, but mmWave sucks for stable usability, your hand holding the phone or a panel of treated glass is enough to cancel out the connection

 

Most overhyped and confusing mobile generation yet

5G will give China the keys to all the locks. 

And wouldn’t mind losing a few million or shortening life span.
